The Zen of Bennett

Wednesday, October 24 - Thursday, November 1, 2012

The ZEN OF BENNETT is a seductive and soulful view into the mind of singer Tony Bennett as well as an intimate portrait of the artist’s creative process as he turns 85 years old. In a first person narrative, Tony reflects back over his 60 year career while looking ahead within the context of his latest recording project. A stylistic and compelling meditation of contradictions — crowded rooms & isolation, art & commerce, family & career, a golden age & a brave new world, the icon & the everyman — THE ZEN OF BENNETT is a testament to how an artist can endure and still be at the top of his game for over 60 years, true to his art and social conscience.
